Beijing 2008 - official Logo - lol



and now the crazy story about
----------------------------------------------

The Toronto Star - July 23, 2003

Chinese cite logo low blow



Blame it on Toronto.

That's the view some Chinese officials and Olympic fans are taking after a Toronto-based Web site, gamesbids.com, unveiled the official logo for the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics in advance of a splashy launch planned for Aug.3.

Rob Livingstone of Toronto, a project management consultant who runs the Web site, said he got the logo from the British trademark database. He said it was also available through the United States trademark database June 5.

The logo was originally scheduled to be made public May 25 in the Chinese capital, but was postponed because of the SARS outbreak. The International Olympic Committee still went ahead and registered the logo as a trademark internationally.

"You can't imagine the hate mail I'm getting over this," said Livingstone. "They've gone as far as to suggest this is Toronto getting back at Beijing for losing the 2008 bid and exporting SARS."

The logo resembles the Chinese character "wen," which according to gamesbid.com can mean humanity (renwen) or culture (wenhua). It is on a traditional Chinese seal-cutting.

In the print edition, the Toronto Star published the logo as well
now the big party from Beijing is messed up - lol
because the world know it already

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

i don´t like it too!!!

here is what i found out, about the meaning

it is a kind of traditional Chinese art of seal cutting
the character inside the "seal" is a Chinese character "wen", meaning "humanity" (renwen) or "culture" (wenhua).
It also looks alike the Chinese character "Jing", meaning "capital" or simply "Beijing".
